Bouchaine Pinot Noir, Carneros, Napa Valley

"The allure of Pinot Noir is its unpredictability – you never really know what you're going to get. There is a light mouth feel, high acidity and tart red fruit flavors. It's enigmatic, but not sweet. It's fruit balanced by earth and leather. It is spice and evergreen. There is a lot of space between the characteristic notes that speak of Pinot Noir like it used to be."

$24.99

Bouchaine Chardonnay, Carneros, Napa Valley

"This wine comes from vines dating to Bouchaine's original plantings in 1981, growing on our windswept Napa Valley Carneros hillsides. It's a true expression of Chardonnay—bright, citrusy flavors graced with only the merest hint of oak. Shows classic Carneros lime and grapefruit styling. A hint of vanilla graces the mid-palate. Its fruit flavors, bright acidity, notable texture (a hallmark characteristic of Carneros Chardonnay), harmonize in an elegant, stylish wine. Straw gold in color, it dances in the glass like sunlight." Estate grown $24.00

Domaine de Majas Syrah

"Cotes Catalanes is one of the most important IGPs in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, covering the Pyrenees-Orientales department on the border with Spain. Vineyards cover the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees mountain chain, an area also used for the Cotes du Roussillon, Banyuls and Collioure appellations. The IGP exists to provide a geographic indication for wines that are made outside the existing AOC vinification requirements or permitted styles."

This Syrah offers black fruit, with black pepper notes, spicy hints and liqueur, and red fruit flavors. The nose produces scents of balsamic and liquorice notes. It displays a very pleasant freshness and balanced, and subtlety.

On the palate it has a good mouthfeel, light, medium-bodied, well-defined and with bright acidity. A slight chocolate bitterness which ends up being dominated its fruitiness (blackcurrants), the smoothness of its tannins and its great persistence. A very interesting Syrah. A rustic, yet elegant wine.

Food Pairing: Lamb, Beef, Hard Cheeses. $19.99

Domaine de Majas Rouge

"Cotes Catalanes is one of the most important IGPs in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, covering the Pyrenees-Orientales department on the border with Spain. Vineyards cover the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees mountain chain, an area also used for the Cotes du Roussillon, Banyuls and Collioure appellations. The IGP exists to provide a geographic indication for wines that are made outside the existing AOC vinification requirements or permitted styles."

The Rouge from Domaine Majas is a blend of old vine Carignage and Grenache. It displays a brilliant ruby colour with an explosive nose of blackberries and cherries. On the palate, this wine has intense black fruit concentration, astonishing minerality, and tannins that just melt in your mouth. Delicious and enjoyable

Try it alongside lamb, steak, mac and cheese, mushrooms, and roasted vegetables. $21.00

Ex Umbris Syrah

We love everyting from Washington State vintner Owen Roe and the Ex Umbris Syrah is no exception! The label may be non-descript, but the wine is anything but.

"The 2012 Ex Umbris is a great expression of the bold fruit flavors from that year. Bursting with aromas of red plum, blueberry and pink peppercorn. The palate is filled with refreshing flavors of fresh summer blackberries, currant, and dark chocolate with noticibly structured acidity and silky tannins." $28.00

Laws Whiskey House is a Denver-based distillery producing authentic, local bourbon; no shortcuts and no compromises.

A four grain Bourbon must follow all the rules of a Bourbon, but it contains all three typical flavor grains that accentuate the corn base: barley, wheat and rye. To achieve such an uncommon expression of bourbon takes skill. These four "American mother grains" are painstakingly combined in exacting ratio in our cooker coming together to create a highly complex and flavorful whiskey. The results showcase the flavor of each grain without compromising balance.

This exquisite bourbon offers aromas of sweet corn, spicy rye, and chilis. Flavors of caramel and vanilla transition to rye and tobacco on the finish. $68.00

Barterhouse Kentucky Bourbon 20 yr.

The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Company was started to share barrels of rare and delicious whiskey, hidden away and nearly forgotten in the back of rickhouses and distilleries.

Stories of these lost whiskeys have become the stuff of legend. The goal is to bottle these rare, small offerings for the world to try.

Every Orphan Barrel is hand bottled in Tullahoma, Tennessee, to ensure that these rare whiskeys are treated with the care they deserve – because some of them will only be available once. And once they're gone, they're gone forever.

Barterhouse Kentucky Bourbon:

Twenty years in American Oak will make your average spirit a bit mellow. Take all the fight out. Well this here is no ordinary spirit, and twenty years is long enough to pick up a trick or two. For one barrel in particular, it was long enough to develop the gift of a silver tongue. The old rickhouse hands had it written off as a rumor. A character so smooth, it could clean out the card sharps and take the shirt off a travelling salesman's back.

But the rumors were true. And when the chips are in, a smooth operator can be mighty persuasive indeed. One sip of Barterhouse Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and you just might find yourself forgiving Robert Johnson for trading his soul to the very devil himself.

Tasting notes include warm biscuits and buttercream, with spice and brown sugar in the finish.

Domaine Saint-Lannes Cotes de Gascogne

"Domaine de Saint-Lannes spreads across the sprawling slopes so typical of the region. The surface under vine is 49 hectares with a clay and limestone soil which is an ideal site for the white grape varieties grown there. The south facing slopes ensure early ripening as well as perfect drainage. The continental climate, hot summers and cold winters, is beneficial for the healthy development of the vegetative cycle of the vines. The average age of the vines is 27 years.

Pale yellow with silvery glints and a youthful rim. Vibrant aromas of lively citrus and exotic fruit on the nose give way to a fresh, nicely balanced palate and long finish that is clean and aromatic."

This Cotes de Gascogne makes for a refreshing aperitif, or pairs well with salads, goat's cheese, charcuterie, fois gras, and delicate white fish.
